Thanks for your reply. Either you've running already lubuntu 14.04 and
there the libraries needed to compile Viewnior are the right ones or you
did not really compile it: if you do './configure' you're getting a list
of files which are not recent enough to create the Makefile. Here is the

configure: error: Package requirements (gtk+-2.0 >= 2.20
glib-2.0 >= 2.32              gio-2.0 >= 2.32
shared-mime-info >= 0.20              gdk-pixbuf-2.0 >= 2.4.0
   exiv2 >= 0.21) were not met:

No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
No package 'exiv2' found

Now, i do not have in mind to do bricolage up to the point to try to
find somewhere (debian testing maybe) the needed packages. That's the
reason why i also tried the .deb package of Viewnior i found among the
Debian packages. But there too i'm getting unfullfilled dependencies
(the first one: libfontconfig1 is too old).

I think i'll wait for 14.04 and then retry. Btw, for me Viewnior is a
really nice and very small imageviewer. Have a look at.

Thanks again!
